Liverpool opens Boot Room Sports Café

The new restaurant and bar at Anfield created by Claremont Group Interiors officially opened on Wednesday evening with a party to coincide with the Uefa Europa League game against FC Utrecht.

Claremont was responsible for the design, fit-out and furniture for the 15,000 sq ft project.

The bar and restaurant is in the Kop stand and occupies former office space vacated when Liverpool FC took 30,000 sq ft at Rumford's 20 Chapel Street in the city centre. The new office was also fitted out by Claremont.

The design brief for the 230-seater sports café was for a multi-functional and family friendly environment in line with the LFC brand.

Speaking at the event last night, Ian Ayre, commercial director of the football club, said Liverpool was possibly the first club in the country to introduce children's hospitality packages, priced at £50 for a three course meal and ticket to the game.

The Boot Room is a title synonymous with the history of the club, famous as the room where coaching staff would discuss tactics as well as being the place where the players boots were stored.

Included in the brief was the creation of a new reception area and a 'Reducate' classroom which is used to hold workshops for children to help them improve their numeracy, literacy and ICT skills and increase their confidence and self-esteem.
